• A neonate with a congenital mechanobullous disorder is described and compared with similar patterns from the literature. The blisters were subepidermal, remitted within a few months, and have not recurred on long-term follow-up. The relation of the congenital self-healing mechanobullous dermatoses to epidermolysis bullosa is unclear.
